Field Guide to the Vanity License Plates of Southwestern Ohio: Part 3

The third installment of my typological investigation into the vanity license plates of Southwestern Ohio is based around God [and really odd abbreviations]. Above, my photo of CHLD O GD features the light of God beaming down on this car. Jesus for life, indeed.

A bit of leetspeak with W8T 4 GOD:

GODS CHP is a puzzle — God’s cheap? God’s chap? I don’t understand this one:

Not surprisingly, most of these photos were taken outside of churches on Sunday mornings. If one of these license plates is yours, worry not — I’m not a stalker, just an observer of minutia. For more in the series, check out Part 1: meta expression and Part 2: sports messaging, and possibly adult content.

Edited to add GOD DID, but did he really?

On a possibly related note, GD DED IT:

  1. I’m really bad with these things. GODS CHP? God’s Chupacabra? I’m thinking a Danny Trejo movie. HE IS GUD? Maybe just a happy wife?
    dunno
    Kind of surprised states allow the use of God on license plates at all. GOD H8 FAG? Some people think it’s sacrilegious just to put a possessive S after “God” because there’s only 1 god. Then there’s the whole “government issue” thing…

  2. The God thing is a bit strange, since states are normally really careful about not allowing potential gang references or other inappropriate language on vanity license plates.

    In any case, I’ve got at least five more of these thematic posts in the queue, so there will be plenty more weird stuff to discuss in coming months!
